Longtime St. Louis ND to Retire in May

By Kevin Eck 

KTVI and KPLR news director Audrey Prywitch is retiring in May.

“After a distinguished career serving the St. Louis community, she will be missed,” said Kurt Krueger, vice president and general manager of the St. Louis, Missouri Fox affiliate. “We wish her much happiness in her retirement.”

Prywitch joined the station as assistant news director in 2001 and has been news director since 2008. Before that, she worked at CBS affiliate KMOV.


She guided the newsroom through the merging of KTVI and KPLR newsrooms and the relocation of KTVI to its current offices in Maryland Heights from Hampton Avenue.

“It has been a pleasure and honor to lead this newsroom for the past 16 years. So much has happened during that time,” Prywitch said.

The station said Prywirch is “looking forward to spending more time traveling with her husband, Rick, to Los Angeles to visit her children and their families. And here in Saint Louis, they await the arrival of their fourth grandchild.”
